Connect to Your Heart Space

August 27, 2015

Heart core work for all relationship sādhanā.

I’ve been on the road for 4 weeks. Here I am finally getting some time to listen to my heart space— apparently she has a lot to say..

Dear One,

Here is the space of mystery. Your body is the place for pleasure. Your mind is the place of intellectual Eros. Here is the space of wonder. Here you get lost to get found.

Rest in this place of adbhuta (childlike wonder, curiosity, astonishment). Where, even for just a moment, you’re completely mystified at the connection and you find yourself lost in the infinite expanse of pure awareness. Where your mind strives to understand, your heart simply melts into auspicious recognition.

Increase these moments. Get lost in them longer. If you can’t seem to find this mutual space together.  First, find it for yourself within yourself. Then consider if it’s interesting without the wonder. Is it satisfactory without the astonishment?

Let go when your thought is to hold on. Open when you feel me want to close. Surrender when your instinct is to fight.

Create connection. Love.

Connect to your heart this upcoming January on Ashleigh Sergeant and Justin Newman’s Yoga & Surf Retreat for Couples. Get in touch with relationship. For more information, click here.
